Description of charity's activities and outcomes
The Infants Home goal is to provide positive and lasting social change within the community by supporting the development and growth of children and their families, especially those that are vulnerable, through integrated early childhood education and care, early intervention and clinical health support services.The Infants Home is the largest provider of integrated early childhood services in NSW, is the prime provider of integrated care for children at risk in the Inner West, and is nationally recognised for excellence. Operating for over 143 years, in 2017 our services were accessed by over 2,500 children (from birth to school age) and their families. 30% of our onsite services are targeted tosupport children at risk, including from neglect, domestic violence, economic hardship, physical disability, mental health challenges, relationship breakdown, complex nutritional needs and other vulnerabilities.The Infants Home is a proven agent of positive social change. By integrating services we address complex issues in a coordinated manner to improve long-term educational and social outcomes for both children and families.Since our inception over 140 years ago we have challenged conventional wisdom to protect children at risk and strengthen families living with vulnerabilities, so they can break the cycles of hardship, fear and hopelessness that affects so many lives. We were one of the first in New South Wales to pioneer a range of care options to meet the needs of young children and their families. The Infants Home is a proven agent of positive social change. Over time, we have supported more than 190,000 children and families to build new futures for themselves. We have achieved this by providing physical and emotional environments that are socially just and equitable, free of any stigma, and that value the rights of children and families.
